Rupurt Raleston and his siblings, Richanda and Valerius, return to their ancestral home, Pirate’s Haven. It is the only thing they have left and they believe that there are hidden treasures that will save them from destitution. Amongst these treasures is rumoured to include an ancestral sword, The Luck, which will return them to their previous glory. But as they get closer to finding this hidden treasure, another man has come to claim the ancestral home. A man who says that he is the rightful heir from another branch of the family. Rupurt, Richanda and Valerius must now find proof of their ownership or lose everything – Pirate’s Haven…and any chance they may have for the future.
